The NH-D14 is a great cooler and will definitely keep your temps low. There are cheaper options and will keep a 4.5ghz OC at a perfectly acceptable temp too. I HIGH recommend that you DON'T get a closed loop water cooler as they aren't nearly as effect and efficient as good air coolers. Not to mention they are more expensive, louder, and have possibility of leakage.
There is a list of compatible rams on the Noctua site if you get one.

actually, the closed loop coolers are comparable to high end air coolers. downside is they are a tad more expensive (usually have to replace the fans). upside is you do not have the massive heatsinks hanging on your motherboard.

regarding leakage, for corsair, they have a guarantee on their liquid coolers. if any components get damaged, they will pay for all the damaged parts. another ocn member posted a positive experience regarding that.

at the end it is really a matter of preference. i think all the coolers listed are really good. for tight budget, it is hard to beat 212+ or 212 evo. closed loop coolers? h80 or h100 gets my vote. top air coolers? noctua nh-d14 and thermaltake silver arrow have lots of users that will attest to its performance.

Hi neth, thanks again,

whats the differences between the 212+ and the evo? having a quick look there, i couldnt see.
looking at it, the hypers are more my budget, that allows me an extra 30 or so quid to add to my g/card, as long as what ohh gourami posted, if a "cheaper" cooler will keep me stable @4.5ghz then thats fine for me, if i can just post a link :

Is this the one? just i dont see either i5 or socket 1155/1156

this is the 212 evo http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cooler-Master-Hyper-212-EVO-LGA-2011-1366-1156-1155-775-FM1-AM3-AM3-AM2-/370599779034

yes it will sufficiently cool your 2500k at 4.5 ghz just make sure you have good airflow inside the case that you will pick thumb.gif

Yes they are comparable in temps, but at the expensive of a lot more noise. Those corsair fans go up to 3000rpm just to keep up with ~1500rpm fans. Nothing is quiet a 3000rpm! They cover component damage, but they don't cover the trouble of nothing having a computer for a week and all the data you lose. And those closed loop cooler still cost more... I see absolutely no benefit

With my 4.5ghz OC, my max temp is 61C at full load with prime95. Noise levels are ~30dB.
